The Cassadaga Railroad Station opened on June 22, 1871 when the Dunkirk, Allegheny Valley and Pittsburgh Railroad was built. The railroad only went as far as Titusville, Pennsylvania and never completed to Pittsburgh. The rail line from Dunkirk to Titusville was 90.33 miles in length and the Cassadaga Station was at milepost 14.09. In the beginning years, there was a passenger train called the Dolly Varden which ran until June 1937, and passengers could board and exit the train at the station. The railroad station 7230, had a siding for the businesses of Payne Supply of Lumber Supplies, A.P. Woods Coal, B&O Taylor grain, flour and seed, and the L. Knott & Co. Lumber business. In the late 1950s, the station was dismantled and the lumber floated on the Cassadaga Lakes to be used for the buildings at the Camp Gross Boy Scout Camp. The station was located on Commercial Street.
